Grease or foreign objects prevent water from flowing through the sewage system. Sometimes a sewer repair is as simple as a drain cleaning.
Sewer line problems can cause a variety of problems for your home. A blocked sewer line can cause flooding, property damage, and the need for extensive repairs. It’s important to be aware of the signs that you need sewer repairs so that a plumber can address the problems quickly.
What Are the Signs of a Broken Sewer Pipe?
Luckily, there are several obvious signs that you could have a broken sewer pipe. Keep an eye out for the following signs:
Fluctuating Levels of Toilet Water
If you notice that the water level in your toilet is high one day and then low the next day, chances are that there’s a break in a sewer pipe.
Water That Drains Slowly
If your sink or shower drains slowly — or if water comes back up the drain — this is a pretty good indication that there’s a break in your sewer line.
Bad sounds and worse smells.
If you hear clanking sounds as water is draining or you smell a foul odor coming from the drain, the culprit is most likely a blocked or broken sewer line. Sewer odor especially shouldn’t be ignored, so contact our team for emergency plumbing services right away if this happens.
If patches of your lawn or landscaping become unexplainably soggy, the underlying issue — literally — could be a leaking sewer line. You may also notice raised and even flooded patches where the sewer line begins.
Similar to a soggy landscape, extra-green or overgrown grass is a sign of a leak in your sewer system as your grass is receiving extra water and nutrients from the organic waste.
This is a serious sign of sewer damage and needs to be addressed immediately. Cracks in your foundation could be caused by a broken sewer line and will only get worse if left untreated.
Pests are attracted to unprotected water and food sources. A broken sewer pipe will attract mice, rats, insects, and the diseases that they carry.
As water leaks from a sewer line and doesn’t have the ability to evaporate, it will cause moisture buildup and the perfect environment for mold to grow. Not only does a broken sewer line promote the growth of mold, but it can also cause serious water damage to your home.
Various Plumbing Issues
If you notice water draining slowly in multiple drains, varying water levels in your toilet, and even toilet water back up into your shower, you’re probably experiencing a sewer blockage or broken pipe.
If you’re experiencing any of these issues with your plumbing, contact High Speed Rooter and Plumbing right away to schedule a sewer repair and pipe repair.
How Do I Fix My Main Sewer Line?
Only a professional plumber should perform sewer repairs or pipe repairs on your system. This is because they will be able to quickly identify if the issue is a broken pipe, a blockage in the sewer line, or a combination of the two.
From there, your plumber will be able to determine the best solution for the issues you’re experiencing. We may need to replace the broken or corroded pipe, or we may need to perform a drain cleaning to clear out any clogs.
How Much Does it Cost to Repair a Sewer Line?
The cost of sewer repairs or pipe repairs depends on how much damage there is to the system and to the rest of your property. If there’s a blockage, a drain cleaning may cost a few hundred dollars. If, however, there’s extensive pipe damage, you could be looking at anywhere from $1,000 to several thousand dollars in repairs.
Rest assured that when you work with High Speed Rooter and Plumbing, we will only recommend the services that you truly need — and we won’t charge you a penny more than necessary to complete any sewer repairs or pipe repairs.
